The Nike Air Max 2090 “Photon Dust” consists as one of the inaugural colorways of the brand new silhouette which debuted on Air Max Day. Available at select stockists overseas, the model honors the Air Max 90 as well as the present/future of the Air Max lineage. This spring-inspired theme flaunts Teal Blue covering its translucent upper, along with that same shade of blue landing on the heel tab, and the cassette Air Max unit on the midsole. Finally, black and volt accents throughout provide a nice touch of subtle vibrancy.
Air Max Day is tomorrow and Nike will be debuting the all-new Nike Air Max 2090 to celebrate the occasion. One of the two colorways which will be releasing tomorrow is the Duck Camo pair that is showcased above. This iteration of the Air Max 90 comes equipped with a translucent layered upper in black that reveals a subtle duck camo print across. For contrast we see white detailing placed on the laces, branding on the lateral side panel, and its midsole. Finally, the highlight color of Infrared is prominent on the tongue branding, heel tab, stitching on the lateral side panel, and the “cassette” Air Max unit on the midsole. Anyone looking to cop can do so tomorrow (3/26) at select retailers and online for $160.
Dubbed the Undefeated X Nike Air Max 90 Pacific Blue, this Air 90 gets some minor modifications to create a newer and sleeker look. Changes include the silhouette’s mud flap being removed and making the hairy suede Swoosh on the side panels larger than normal. These two changes make the classic Air Max 90 into an Undefeated original. The tongue clip and back panel are hit with UNDEFEATED branding, while the Pacific Blue upper is accented by the contrasting hues on the toe box and heel tab region.
Just in time for Air Max Day, BAIT retailer has linked up with the talented Reina Koyano (_vivalareina on IG) to produce the limited edition print you see up top.
Reina, who is best known for her illustration series called “Sole Fatale” where she reimagines iconic sneakers into powerful female figures. Her newest illustration consists of two female figures inspired by the upcoming Nike Air Max 2090 and the Nike Air Max 90 Reverse Duck Camo. This specific print is inspired by the notion that the past inspires tomorrow.
The Nike Air Max 2090 is the newest addition to the Swoosh’s historic archives and it’ll debut in a “Pure Platinum” finish for Air Max Day tomorrow. Inspired by the DNA of the iconic Air Max 90, but infused with forward-thinking design elements, details such as underfoot cushioning, an internal bootie and padded heel ensure sufficient lockdown, and support. Additionally, echoing the AM90’s waffle outsole, the Air Max 2090 employs distinct grooves for flexibility and updates original tread lines for optimal traction.
While we’re still a few months away from Independence Day, the Nike Air VaporMax 3 is getting fitted for the big holiday as the shoe has taken on a patriotic motif. The lightweight runner from the Swoosh, which has been done in countless colorways over its short existence, takes on a white and blue Flyknit construction on the upper which is then blanketed by bold red stripes. More blue is then showcased on the Swoosh branding, laces, and heel counter while contrasting white gets placed on the ankle collar and the tongue. To cap things off we have a translucent VaporMax sole with subtle pops of blue on the outsole. Look for the “USA” Nike Air VaporMax 3 to release soon for $200.
